Get Behind Our Local Pet Supply Store with Your Purchase of Chicken Scratch
Healthy chickens lay tasty eggs, and you get healthy poultries from high quality poultry feed. While you can buy a huge bag of random food down at your local farm resource store, you will not have any type of concept if it's right for your brood or not.
Finding the right food with the appropriate nutritional balance is vital, but the experts at The Critters & Me in 1403 Agua Fria St are here to help you locate the ideal food for your coop.
Chickens are rather omnivorous and voraciously opportunistic. They'll eat anything from grain to bugs, and even animal items relying on how little the pieces are. Additionally, they need a diverse selection of nutrients in order to not only lay eggs but lay eggs that are nutritionally dense.
Chick starter and grower feed- These feeds are loaded with calories - especially from healthy protein - to help your chicks grow swiftly, boosting their immune systems and enhancing their total health and wellness. Grower feed is critical for suitable poundage and quick development for robust, healthy poultries.
Layer feed- Flawlessly balanced for healthy hens laying eggs on a regular basis, layer feed has a different dietary composition that includes more calcium to encourage proper egg production in newly laying hens.
Flock raiser- This feed provides balanced nutrition when you have a mixed flock of poultries. Flock raiser feeds wonderful, general nutrition to all type of poultries without the optimized micronutrient profiles of the other types of feed. Simply put, it's simply less complicated to use and still provides wonderful nutrition.
Crumble and pellets- Chickens often tend to choose tiny pellets and crumble to bigger pieces of food - they're just less complicated to eat! Crumble is usually the key presentation of flock raiser food, as it's simple for chicks and chickens alike to eat and absorb.
Shell grit- Included in layer feed, shell grit has 2 functions - one, it aids the gizzard break down food correctly, and 2, it adds additional calcium to your poultry's diet. Calcium is needed for proper nutrition no matter, but it's especially vital for egg-laying chickens.
Corn- Cracked corn isn't a great feed - it's calorie-dense but not big on nutrition. No matter, it's a nice treat for your chickens, it's really economical and in a pinch, it can be used to feed your poultries if you've got absolutely nothing else handy.
